A beautiful male Crimson chat (Epthianura tri-color) enjoying sucking nectar from a Two-nerved wattle (Acacia bovenosa). This one was taken in July when the plants were still in flower. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #birds_illife #birds_adored #birds_captures #pocket_birds #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #total_birds #totalbirds #birdbrilliance #bird_brilliance #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #pilbara_wildlife #birdsofaustralia at Dampier, Western Australia

Masters of Disguise— a wild Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) sitting on the branch of a flowering acacia bush. I’ve seen acacia bushes full of ‘feathered ‘ leaves, when there is a lot of grassy seed & ground water available. They have been known to travel long distances for food & water. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #totalbirds #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofaustralia #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #feathered_finds #feather_perfection #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

This little cute-ster is an immature Pink & grey (Eolophus roseicapilla). Also known as Roseate-breasted cockatoo, galah or cocky. They make excellent pets & can be taught to speak several words or short phrases. Many Australians own one- some of the words they are taught are swear words. I have a friend who is embarrassed when she has visitors. The husband taught their galah to cuss!! 🤣🤣🤣 If pet galahs are not taught to speak by their owner- they end up teaching themselves. They will speak words which are continually used. Even when their cage is outside, they will easily pick up words (if the owner is an outdoors person). #your_best_birds #kings_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #totalbirds #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofaustralia #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #feathered_finds #feather_perfection at Dampier, Western Australia

A flock of budgerigars sitting on a dead tree waiting - checking to make sure it’s safe to land for a feed of grass seeds. They often look like leaves when they sit on trees. I’d say they are masters of camouflage, wouldn’t you? 😊 #your_best_birds #kings_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #totalbirds #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofaustralia #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #feathered_finds #feather_perfection at Karratha, Western Australia

Star finch (Neochmia ruficauda), sitting near a nest. The nest was in a branch hanging over a billabong/waterhole. I went back two days later. The nest was broken (the chicks were well & truly big enough to leave it). I assume that a group of naughty white - plumed honey eaters broke the nest & it fell off the branch it was woven onto. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #totalbirds #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofaustralia #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #feathered_finds #feather_perfection at Roebourne, Western Australia

I felt sorry for this Torresian crow (Corvus orru). It was collecting nest material but gave up when it was peppered by about three families of Yellow-throated miners. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #totalbirds #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofaustralia #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #wonderfulbirds #wonderful_birds #feathered_finds #feather_perfection #tbsbib at Dampier, Western Australia

Peaceful dove (Geopelia placida). This lovely little one came in for a drink of water at the historical buildings near Cossack. I was sitting on the ground resting my 400mm lens on my knee. I didn’t edit any of this photo- it’s simply a beautiful specimen😊 #your_best_birds #kings_birds #birds_illife #birds_captures #birds_adored #birdsofaustralia #totalbirds #wonderfulbirds #pocket_birds #total_birds #wonderful_birds #thebirdingsquad #eye_spy_birds #best_bird_shots #best_birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance at Cossack, Western Australia

Looking at the screen, the two eggs, belonging to the Little Terns (Sternula albifrons) are directly below the bird’s left foot. As you can see, the crushed shells & beach sand act as camouflage 😊 #your_best_birds #kings_birds #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #thebirdingsquad #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #total_birds #wonderful_birds #feather_perfection #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

If it looks like this Little tern (Sternula albifrons) is landing fast— it’s because it is. They hover about 2 metres above where their eggs are - then drop ...fast. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #thebirdingsquad #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #total_birds #wonderful_birds #feather_perfection #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

Little tern (Sternula albifrons) landing on its crude nest, on the high tide mark of the beach. On very high tides, the eggs face the risk of being washed away. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #ip_birds #bns_birds #bird_brilliance #thebirdingsquad #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #total_birds #wonderful_birds #feather_perfection #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

Spinifex pigeon (Geohaps plumifera), being curious. They are normally very timid birds.

Little tern lifting off to fend off three seagulls. Seagulls have been teasing the pair of Terns, by swooping & spiraling thru the air over the spot where their nest is. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

Last Little tern (Sternula albifrons) photo— before someone throws cans of tomatoes at me 😜 This little parent caught this fish in a water hole in the rocks on high tide. It is a rather large size for this breed of small tern; but guess what— it didn’t take the egg sitting parent long to swallow it. 😊😊😊 #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

Little tern (Sternula albifrons) keeping a close eye on the eggs, to ensure it doesn’t accidentally land on them. Little Terns are extremely careful when they land near their eggs. I can’t say they are as good at fishing! Sometimes it can take them several attempts to catch a fish. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds #pilbarawildlife at Dampier, Western Australia

If you haven’t seen a Little tern (Sternula albifrons) land- they do so very fast. They hover to line themselves up; perfectly near their eggs; then they drop at the last second. It all happens so fast. A high shutter speed is needed. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Dampier, Western Australia

It was a hot day, tempers flared, & friends forgot who their friends were 😂 This male & female Pink & grey galah (Eolophus Roseicapilla) had a fight when trying to get a drink. The water was only at a trickle, so the birds had to be patient...or else 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Mesa A mine

Couldn’t help cropping this one & Posting. The look on this little Zebra finch’s face is priceless. In the wild, they drink very fast & take off even faster, as they have many natural predators. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Karratha, Western Australia

Little tern (Sternula albifrons) parent chasing off seagulls. Seagulls are very clever. Three approached the nesting area. They came from three different sides, one teased the Little tern until it gave chase. The other two thought they were clever enough to jump into the nesting area—-but zingggggg.... the other partner came zooming in from out of nowhere and drove both gulls off 😁😁😁 #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Dampier, Western Australia

Not sure what this Little tern (Sternula albifrons) parent was doing. Whether it was packing the eggs with shells to keep them at the correct temperature, or what. It would pick up a crushed shell & appear to place the small pieces on top of the two eggs. Both parents have been moving a great deal, getting up & sitting down repeatedly- so I think the eggs may hatch any day now 😊😊😊 #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Dampier, Western Australia

Does anyone know what this bird is? I took it when we were in Brazil. We were in such a hurry, I didn’t get s chance to ID it. It looks as though it’s eating s spider. It was pouring with rain & overcast. Lucky I keep glad sandwich & Hercules bags in my Lowepro backpack. I was soaked by the time I finished walking around the hotel. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Brazil

Something very different, by me. I used one of the filters on Insta, over this capture of a small flock of Zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) and two White plumed Honeyeater (Lichenostomus penicillatus), sharing the same dead branch to water. #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #feather_features #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #wonderful_birds #bird_brilliance #bns_birds #ip_birds at Karratha, Western Australia

Little tern (Sternula albifrons) parent, just about to sit on two eggs. 😊 Little Terns are endangered or vulnerable some states in Australia, however their overall status federally is secure. They have just commenced nesting here in the west-Pilbara, so please take care when 4x4 driving on beaches. As you can see from this photo; their eggs are difficult to spot. #birdsofaustralia #birds_captures #birds_illife #birds_adored #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #eye_spy_birds #thebirdingsquad #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #ip_birds #bns_birds #kings_birds at Dampier, Western Australia

One of our little natives- Mr Red-capped robin (Petroica goodenovii). This little guy followed me in Meekathara, as I stalked through a mulga patch. He would catch a bug to eat- then sun himself on a dry branch. #your_best_birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_illife #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #birdsofaustralia #total_birds #wonderful_birds #eye_spy_birds #thebirdingsquad at Meekatharra

Cockatiels/Weeros (Nymphicus hollandicus)- half the group are on the ground drinking. The other half are hovering & just about to go down. Cockatiels land, drink & take off very fast. Their sense of danger is always on high alert. I wish I could’ve videoed the water hole and surrounds, as I counted 6 raptors hovering. A black kite, a spotted harrier & several whistling kites. #birdsofaustralia #your_best_birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #birds_captures #birds_illife #total_birds #wonderful_birds #pocket_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig # #bird_brilliance #birdlifeoz at Mesa A mine

Cockatiels/Weeros (Nyphicus hollandicus) just lifted up from drinking at a permanent water hole (Billabong/Yinda). I have never seen so many cockatiels in one place. They are the same as other water searchers- they travel in smaller flocks and then join up when they get close to a water source. The flock I saw yesterday was easily 200 in size😊 #birdsofaustralia #your_best_birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #birds_captures #birds_illife #total_birds #wonderful_birds #pocket_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig # #bird_brilliance #birdlifeoz at Mesa A mine
